George L. Tamvakis Law Firm

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Chicago

Our medical malpractice attorneys can help you better understand medical malpractice and the rights of injured patients and their families. Medical malpractice may be defined as a failure by a medical professional to provide a standard level of care to a patient. This may occur in the initial diagnosis of a patient, when a doctor fails to notice an important symptom or simply does not recognize a serious illness for what it is, possibly discharging the patient or prescribing the wrong treatment. It may also occur before or during any type of medical treatment or in post-operative patient care.

Medication errors, surgical injuries, birth injuries, misdiagnosis and anesthesia errors are some of the primary types of medical malpractice cases handled by the attorneys at the Law Firm of George L. Tamvakis. We strongly support the belief that patients have the right to receive proper treatment for their medical conditions, whatever they may be. We fight for injured patients and the families of patients who have lost their lives due to medical negligence.

Unlike other types of personal injury cases, the facts necessary to prove your case are based on the medical records and testimony of medical experts. Your attorney must have a thorough understanding of the facts of medicine and the law to effectively draw essential facts from these records and to present the best experts, both of which are crucial for a successful outcome in any medical malpractice or negligence case.

Ultimately, your attorney must explain the medical and legal issues to the jury and judge to recover the best settlement or verdict. If you want to receive the largest settlement possible, you must have an attorney who has both the experience and track record to represent your case.
